We learned this week that more cuts to health care and education could be on the way in 2012, and yet some state House lawmakers want to give a new costly tax break to the lucky few in the market for a private jet.
I wrote about this earlier in the week after the Pennsylvania Budget and Policy Center released an analysis of the tax break legislation. Our friends at Keystone Progress and the CLEAR Coalition hosted a "billionaires' news conference" at the state Capitol to draw some attention to this troubling proposal.
Clad in tuxes and minks, the upper crusters in attendance lamented the rising costs of private jets and even booed PBPC Director Sharon Ward when she spoke out against this outrageous tax break.
